Waco’s Rapoport Academy has temporarily shifted too remote learning.

According to KWTX, due to the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in McLennan County, fifth through 12th grade students at the Academy have shifted to remote learning until after Thanksgiving break.

The school is supplying five breakfasts and five lunches for students starting Wednesday.

While fifth through 12th graders are learning remotely, both elementary campuses are continuing normal operations.

If this change affects your family and you have nutrition concerns, they've got that handled. Starting Wednesday, November 11, Rapoport Academy will offer breakfast and lunch boxes for students with five breakfasts and five lunches.

These meals can be picked up at the DCAC Cafeteria on the Quinn Campus
located at 1020 Elm Avenue.

Meal kit pickup dates and times are Wednesday, November 11 and Monday, November 16 between 11AM and 12:30 PM. Make sure you're there during those time slots, or it's very likely you'll miss out.

You'll also need to register ahead of time. For details on remote meals and the return date, click here.

The 2020-2021 school year has definitely been a challenging one, with many schools switching back and forth between in-class and virtual learning as the COVID-19 situation has fluctuated.

To help slow the spread of the virus and help things run as smoothly and normally as possible under these circumstances, you should continue to wear a mask when you're out and about or anywhere physical distancing is difficult. Be sure to keep washing and sanitizing your hands frequently and being mindful of what you're touching (your phone, door handles, etc.) before you touch your face, eyes, nose, or mouth.

Thanks to all the educators and school nutrition staff who are holding it down through this ordeal. It hasn't been easy, and we appreciate you.
